I have a USB 3.0 external hard drive that I want to connect to an eSata port on my computer. Does anyone know of an adapter that will allow me to do this?
I have found numerous adapters that allow connecting an eSata hard drive to a USB 3.0 port on the computer, but, none of these adapters will work in reverese (USB 3.0 hard drive to eSata port).
I've looked everywhere and can't locate one. Any advise would be very appreciated.

I have yet to see one. It would be rather complex(require a bridge chip and power) since working the other way gets power from the USB connection. E-sata has no power(well there are some combo E-SATA USB ports, but those are not as common as straight e-sata).

I have yet to see one.

Do you not have USB 3.0? It should be fast enough for any hard drive.

If you do not have USB 3.0, i would suggest getting a USB 3.0 PCI-e(or even PCI, but it would not be as fast) card as they are not that expensive and would cost less then any adapter if they make them
